Ignoring your passion is slow suicide. Never ignore what your heart pumps for. Mold your career around your lifestyle not your lifestyle around your career.
How bold one gets when one is sure of being loved.
Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.
This is why I don’t do shading. Never comes out right.
Sak Yant or Yantra Tattooing are believed to give the wearer magic powers associated with healing, luck, strength, and protection against evil.
You can get these here in thailand by a monk, they look beautiful but I’d never recommend it. Essentially, you’re making a pact with a spirit to protect you in exchange for sacrificing an activity or habit you may have previously enjoyed (the monk decides what this is, not you). These tattoos are contracts.
Breaking your side of the bargain may encourage the spirit to ‘punish’ you, and these contracts are not easily voided.
Reblogging for the informative caption. A lot of young people want things like this to be cool hipster fucks and they entirely disrespect the meaning behind these ceremonies
even though i personally dont believe in spirits or that stuff, i still believe that you shouldnt appropriate something this serious and important from their culture just to look “cool”
Cultural appropriation is definitely a big deal.
Also, I am not religious, but I do have a reasonable belief in/fear of spirits, and to get a tattoo that essentially is a binded contract not to do something I like, or to be punished for it, sounds like some serious bad news bears. You need to be super committed to accepting whatever you are told to give up
